The Red Wings' fourth-round draft pick last summer, Zack Torquato, will make his pro debut tomorrow with Grand Rapids after being called up on an amateur tryout. Torquato, 18, plays for the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League. He was second on the team in scoring (67 points) and third in goals (25) in 66 games played.
Torquato was at training camp with the Red Wings last fall. He played in the 2007 OHL All-Star Classic and for Team Canada at the 2007 under-18 world championships and the 2006 under-18 junior world cup (gold medal).
Torquato is a native of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.
